This haunting ballad was written by Nick Cave for Marianne Faithfull. The pair also co-wrote the Give My Love to London track "Deep Water." Faithfull previously included three of Cave's tunes on her 2005 album Before the Poison.
The song is a slice of junkie mythology, which finds the songstess imagining herself as a ghost wafting along the Golborne road in Notting Hill, London. Faithfull told Mojo magazine. "I have been up the Golbourne road to score. but I didn't realise until I went back there with Rob (Ellis, producer) to the fish and chip shop. It's a fascinating song because its very English. you know the English way, we were never waiting for the man. We were running desperately after the man."
